Default Gunbroker.com find....

i bought this rifle off of gunbroker a couple weeks ago....for the price i figured i would get a rough POS rifle....but not so,when i broke the rifle down and gave it a good once over....who ever owned it,took very good care of it...it is a kinda odd cal. 7.62x45,i hope the chamber insert that i purchased from numrich works "its drying"

incase some of you dont know what it is,its a vz/cz 52 it has a pretty neat side folding bayo,&10rd mag that looks like with a lil modding it will accept AK mags

most of the rifles i have seen online dont have a muzzle break...this one has what looks to be an AKtype break?

should have a range report tomorrow if the insert doesnt fly out on me

Not bad. You do know they had their own cartridge? 7.62x45mm vz. 52 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Congrats!

I think i saw that one when i was looking for cz52 pistol parts & such. IIRC, seller had trouble finding ammo or something?

I was tempted.

c3,
yeah that rd. is kinda hard to come by & is very corrosive...if this chamber insert doesnt stay put,i'm prob going to order up some 220swift cases & make some 7.62x45's...we'll see what happens tomorrow

orangello,

i'm not sure what was in the auction description about it?...

the guy that sold it was selling it for someone else...i have seen the 7.62x45 ammo for it on gunbroker & the cheapest i've found is .50cent a rd.

im hoping the little insert works,i know it want be as accurate as the org. ammo,because there will be a 6mm gap between the rd. & riflings in barrel...i have a crap load of reloadable 7.62x39's & just hope the lil insert hangs on,because im not ready to dish out .50cent a rd. for very corrosive ammo thats not reloadable :/

Congrats M. It looks to be pretty clean. I'll be interested to see how the insert works out.

Very cool rifle. I have actually bought guns simply because ammo was not available. I love a challenge. Have you found your dies yet? Midwayusa.com has a set of RCBS dies available for $142.00. Kind of pricey. But it was the only brand I saw.

These rifles rock. When they were brought in we had the ammo stacked ceiling high, from wall to wall. About $.06 a rd. Some of my friends and customers bought them, and 10,000-20,000 rds.

Sarco and SOG had the mags, cheap, as recently as last year.

CA357,

i took her out for a spin this morning,feeding it 1 rd. @ a time,inspected the first 5 cases...they all looked good.i loaded up 10rds. & did a lil mag dump...all 10 cases looked good alsoafter cleaning it i checked the chamber insert w/bore light & it looks pretty sound....still dont like the idea of loctite holding it in placeif it comes out on me,i wonder if a gunsmith could silver solder or pin it in place?

Rick1969,

it is a pretty cool rifle...kinda heavy,but it helps tame the lil bit of recoil it has,not much more kick than a .22mag
as for reloading for the rifle,im sure it would be worth it,as i dont know how accurate these rifles are...but the 7.62x45 rd. kinda looks like a x39 on steroids...but as for paying more for dies then what i paid for the rifle...i just dont know about that???....i did see a set of used dies on gunbroker for 50bucks 'buy it now'...guess if i see some more dies popup on there i better snatch them up.


M14Rock,

the rifle is a rocker,i like the trigger group assembly on this rifle the most (kinda like a small M1garand)w/a very nice crisp,clean pull...the gas system is something kinda weird thoughnever seen anything like it...as for cheap mags...only place i have looked for any was at numrich,& they where not so cheap...i really think w/ very little work,an AK mag will fit & function in this rifle....i know they made a 52/57 rifle that shoots the x39 rd. & have heard that you need these types of mags in the x45 rifle if using a insert or having the barrel set back & rechambered....when i loaded mine with 10rds,it fed just fine...do you have anymore of this ammo left?

I don't have any ammo left. But it was within the last year that I saw it somewhere for a decent price. Let me see if I can find it again. It was on one of my usual sites.
